Hair stylist Orlando Pita, for Moroccanoil, created inventive, sleek, horizontal buns that flawlessly complemented the graceful simplicity of this season's luxurious clothes for the Carolina Herrera Fall 2011 Collection. He emphasized sleek slide parts, swept cleanly across the side of the face and folded back into a polished horizontal bun. Keep reading for more info about the look and how you can re-create it!
The Hair Look
"I wanted the hair to look special and different from what we've seen before, especially since it's all about what happens at the back of the head," said Orlando. "For this season, I'm feeling a strong move away from tousled, messy hair. Fashion is definitely more dressed and polished and it's dictating where hair is going. The looks are more controlled, healthy looking and shiny."
Create the Look
"To create the look, I blow dried the hair straight using Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream using a round Moroccanoil Ceramic Ionic Brush to create sleekness as well as add volume. The Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream is great for that. It makes the hair shiny and smooth but still gives it the right amount of hold and substance for updos. Since the look of the hair itself was so important for girls with dry, abused, hair, I first applied a bit of Moroccanoil Treatment to restore condition…it absorbs right in and you can style, groom, and treat with it at the same time."
"After creating a low part, I pulled the hair back, letting one side sweep across the side of the face, making a small ponytail in the back. I let strands hang down, then lifted them up through and down, and attached it with pins at the fold. It looks tucked in, almost like an envelope. I finished the style with a light spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to polish off the look and control any flyaways. Moroccanoil's spray is ideal for this kind of beautiful look because it had amazing hold and makes the hair look shiny but not stiff."
